Title:Issues and developmental implications of Nigeria's fiscal dispensation
Author:Jega, MusaISNI
Periodical:The Nigerian Journal of Economic and Social Studies
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subjects:fiscal policy
revenue allocation
Abstract:This paper focuses on fiscal mismanagement in Nigeria as an integral part of government inefficiency, resulting in poor social amenities and instability. The social relation between property and the State has created a class of elites who continue to scramble for white elephant projects to the detriment of local development. In order to ensure that real development reaches the grassroots, a more equitable formula for revenue sharing must be devised. The clique of elites who have controlled the resources of Nigeria must be uprooted and exposed. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract]
